Illinois GOP Senators Get Extra Work and Pay After Losses
Some will even pull double duty. The 59-seat Senate has 21 standing committees but just 19 Republicans. Democrats added five seats in the fall election to rule with an unprecedented 40 votes. The GOP allowances range from about $10,000 for ranking Republicans on committees to the $27,000 that Christine Radogno of Lemont receives as Senate minority leader. Republican senators doubling up on work will only get one stipend.
